Who is 13.1 Training for?

Anyone who is already able to run at least 4-5 miles and wants to get ready for 13.1 miles. The 12-week 13.1 Training program starts at 4 miles (so you must be able to already run 4 miles comfortably) and builds up to 13.1 miles. We have multiple pace groups for the 13.1 Training program, including 10-11, 11-12, 12-13, run/walk intervals (run 2 minutes, walk 1 minute). Thursday night workouts have a speed/hill/core option for those runners looking to increase their speed and strength. Saturday mornings are long runs. We do require that all 13.1 Training participants be 18 or older.

When and where do workouts take place?

Thursday evening workouts start at 6PM and Saturday morning workouts start at 7:00AM at Reserve Avenue Fields North, across the street from Carilion Clinic 3 Riverside.

Anyone is welcome to TEST DRIVE a 13.1 Training workout for FREE the first week of the session before signing up. Please check-in at the Fleet Feet tent when you arrive.
